Lymphoedema Surveillance Program

Led by Sue Eaton, Senior Clinician Physiotherapist/Lymphoedema therapist, this project trialled a new program in the Breast Cancer Clinic focussed on early detection of lymphoedema. This included education and taking patient limb measurements. 

The trial was a great success with both patient and clinical staff overwhelmingly supportive. 

Funding has been secured to continue the service ongoing.

"Thank you Sue and Karen for the difference that you are making to patients with this condition."  Much appreciated. Dale Fraser, CEO Ballarat Health Services
